Mission / Objectives

The research centre SustBusy (Business and Society – Towards a Sustainable World) was founded in 2013. It provides a platform for research on sustainability in business and society at ESCP and beyond. A key feature of the centre is its members’ broad range of backgrounds who hail from different disciplines within Economics and Management; another key feature is their drive for interdisciplinary exchange and synergies in research and teaching.

We draw on expertise in marketing, organisational control, finance, supply chain management, strategic management, social science, ecological economics, behavioural economics, evolutionary economics, and agent-based modelling to conduct internationally recognised, academically excellent, and problem-oriented research. In addition, we integrate our research into teaching via a variety of sustainability-related courses and specialisations from Bachelor and Master to Executive level and have created several specialised Master programmes.
